As a Ret Paladin I have my cooldowns split into 2 phase, which I use one right after the other. In the first phase I pop Zealotry, Inquisition, and my dps trinket. Second phase is Avenging Wrath followed by my Guardian of the Ancient Kings, I find that using 2 separate phases of cooldowns allows me to maximize their use.

Why would you split Zealotry and your trinket from AW and GoAK? I kind of don't understand how that allows you to maximize their use either, since Zealotry, AW, and most trinkets are all on 2 minute CDs. And wouldn't AW and your trinket be buffing your GoAK? (Forgive the ignorance if it doesn't, but I thought that all pets got their stats from their masters dynamically)

Goodness gracious I fail... I thought Wings were a 2 minute cd, looking at the tooltip it's 3 minutes. Makes a bit more sense now, although I still kind of don't understand why you'd split zealotry from AW.

Pyro, you were correct. A talent reduces the cooldown on wings by 60s so it's 2min for Ret paladins. Likewise, you should stack AW and Zealotry with GotAK. These bonuses are all multiplicative when used together so unless you need them to burst down something quickly you should be using them together.

With 3/3 Sanctified Wrath, AW becomes a 2 minute cooldown.In the technical sense, the AW+Zeal combo is the highest DPS usage for cooldowns right now. Splitting the cooldowns results in a DPS loss on a Patchwerk fight, but I've found that it's nice for things like the head phases of Magmaw, where you have about a minute between "burn phases".

Wings is a two minute cooldown for Ret Paladins when talented into Sanctified Wrath

Sanctified Wrath reduces the cooldown by a minute with 3/3, so it is a 2 min cooldown.

I've heard a rumor (not sure how true it is) that with 3/3 Sanctified Wrath, Avenging Wrath become a two minute cd. Anyone else heard that?Probably just my imagination.
